I admit...these are less dramatic when made in the smaller quantity in this link. The monster cookies when I was little called for a dozen eggs, an entire container of oatmeal, etc. These, on the other hand, are more manageable. I made them even easier by making bar type cookies with the dough. I just didn't want to spend my day off pulling pans in and out of the oven. I pressed the dough into the pan to bake....voila....ready for Friday's spaghetti dinner!
